Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, authors report on
treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal
stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post
surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal
manipulation or mobilization, the patients in
the study reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a
physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Vancouver Disc Centers offers Vancouver
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Chronic neck pain patients seem to walk more stiffly.
Why? Their stride is shorter and their mid-spine doesn’t rotate
as much. Walking like this will affect the
spine well into the future. (2) What to do? Vancouver Disc Centers’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Get Vancouver
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!
National guidelines suggest that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise a week. Only 52% of us Vancouver non-back
pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It is shown that
150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back
pain patients going. They also have
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so effective. Our
Vancouver chiropractic practice encourages a simple walk a day to all Vancouver chiropractic
Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar
NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall
improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new
meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one
of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) NSAIDs are
reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference
is not clinically relevant between NSAIDs and placebo.
It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Vancouver Disc Centers
